Wright dropped from two committees; continues to chair housing panel

The standing committees on the Metro Vancouver board are looking a little different in 2012 as New Westminster Mayor Wayne Wright steps down from two of the positions he held last year.

Wright was formerly part of both the environment and regional planning committees. Those two bodies each combined with separate panels and are now known respectively as the regional planning and agriculture committee and the environment and parks committee.

The mayor will not sit on either of the new panels.

He was, however, reappointed by new Metro Vancouver chair Greg Moore as chair of the housing committee and will continue to sit on both the port cities and zero waste committees

Coun. Jonathan Cote is the one new face representing New Westminster. He'll be sitting on the utilities committee.
